GftEBNViLLfi, PA., MONDAY, MARCH 27,1950 THE RECORD-ARGUS PAGE KOTO CHARLES, BESHORE TAPER Off DRILLS Both Are Improved for Wednesday Bout Buffalo, N. Y., March 27 — (/P)— Eeeard Charles and Freddie Be- •hore ended heavy training today to taper off for their NBA heavyweight title bout here Wednesday. Both agreed that a month's delay may have helped a little. Hie 15-round fight originally wae scheduled for Feb. 28.

The blonde challenger from Harrisburg, Pa., admitted he was con- Aldenderfer's Drug Store The Bexall Store • I IfS Main St. Greenville, Pa. siderably chagrined at frist by the unexpected postponement. But he added: "Now that It's all over, I guess I'm just as glad. I may be a little stronger if anything. Right now I'm just about as good as I can be." Meanwhile, Charles' manager, Jake Mintz, said he was "very much satisfied" with the chain* pion and gave a plug to the coming of spring weather. Mintz said: "I don't think the layoff hurt because it gave him a chance to do some more roadwork when the weather came. It got his weight down a little. I look for him to weigh around 184 pounds, which is very good weight for him." Charles scaled 189Vi five days before the first fight date. Beshore is expected to weigh about 185 Wednesday night. Both fighters finished heavy training with four rounds apiece in the ring and another six rounds of floor work. They planned to rest today. Routine "loosening up" was scheduled for tomorrow.
